The closest main town is Loulé which is famous for its Saturday morning gipsy market and really good daily market in the Arabian style market hall on Praça da República. The beginnings of Loulé are uncertain, some historians putting it as far back as 400 BC, but others say it's origins are Roman. It is a fact that when the Arabs invaded the Algarve in 715, Loulé was already an important town. It has been a part of Portugal since 1249 after the Algarve was recaptured from the Moors and in 1291 King Dom Dinis established the Algarve's only medieval fair in Loulé, a sign of the wealth of the region.
Apart from the historical points of interest, there are also lots of cafés and shops in the criss-crossing network of cobbled alleys and streets and plenty of places to sit in the sunshine and watch the world go by!
Loulé Carnival is one of the biggest events in Loulé and is famous across the Algarve. It takes places in February (over 3 days, the 3rd day being Shrove Tuesday) and is a truly colourful affair with music and dancing and general partying; reminiscent of Brazilian carnivals, when people come from all over the Algarve to watch the processions and join in with the party as everyone takes to the streets!
A villa that will impress with its style, location, and easy maintenance.>
